Admonishes Americans that they will lose their country if they let fanaticism and hatred turn them into "suckers." "Let's forget about 'we' and 'they' -- let's think about us!" In the context of the emerging Cold War, this film appears paradoxical.

"Demonstrates the quality of life as its impact is felt by a young family trying to reorient themselves in a society of conflicting standards and values. Shows how the terms hippie, square, hardhat and straight become blurred when one just tries to find the lifestyle that suits him best. Puts the drug question in perspective as it relates to adults and the total society." (contemporary synopsis of this cinema-verite-style film) A film by Hubert Smith. Photography: Neil Reichline....

Considered THE archetypal sensationalized anti-drug movie, but it's really an exploitation film made to capitalize on the hot taboo subject of marijuana use. Like many exploitation films of the time, "Reefer Madness" tried to make a quick buck off of a forbidden subject while skirting the Motion Picture Production Code of 1930.
